Gary Synder (b. 1930), Pulitzer Prize winning poet (1975), reads and discusses his work and it's world context. Synder reads the title poem from his latest publication, "Axe Handles." Synder discusses meditation, Buddhism and martial arts before reciting another poem "Breasts." Synder examines the Reagan administration's policies towards the Third World, nuclear disarmament and tribal people, then reads "Cricket" and explores the aesthetics of simple poetry. Synder concludes by recounting his 1984 trip to the Peoples Republic of China and his current projects. RECORDED: KPFK, 1987?
